You’ve got your schedule for next week’s courses. Now, take a moment to schedule time with our tutoring staff for the courses you are most challenged by. Do you have an English class at 8 a.m. on Monday? Perhaps your writing tutoring block should be Tuesday morning to address assignments from the previous day. Is there a Math class on Wednesday afternoon? Book some time for Thursday morning to help address outstanding math problems you’re struggling with.
What is Tutor Match?

Why should I use Tutor Match?
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all Chandler-Gilbert campuses are closed and all in-person classes will switch over to a remote format. To help provide academic support for CGCC courses, access to online tutoring has been extended to all students (previously only available for students in online and hybrid courses). Tutor Match will let you connect with tutors from the CGCC Math, Science, and Writing Centers for help with any of your current Chandler-Gilbert classes.
Who can use Tutor Match?
At this time, access to Brainfuse and Tutor Match has been extended to all CGCC students. Please note that you may only use Brainfuse for assistance with Chandler-Gilbert courses in which you are currently enrolled. The use of Brainfuse for coursework from other institutions is strictly prohibited and subject to the college's policies and procedures regarding the acceptable use of student support resources. Brainfuse tutoring sessions are recorded and reviewed by college personnel on a regular basis.
When can I use Tutor Match?
Tutor Match will show which tutors are available once you have chosen a subject. You can then select a session time from the list of available tutors. Students also have access to the Live Help option (through Brainfuse staff) for times that CGCC tutors are not available for pre-scheduled sessions. As much as possible, it is highly recommended that you utilize CGCC tutors via Brainfuse Tutor Match since they are more familiar with your CGCC coursework, instructor expectations, and assignments.
